Pizza……on the grill!

Standard

We like to grill.  A.  Lot.  So I could take the really homemade route and make the pizza dough from scratch.  However, I opt for the ready-made wonders that you can find anywhere, and I typically buy the crispy version.  Here’s my ingredients that I assembled:

Pepperoni, sausage, cheese, black olives, mushrooms, canadian bacon, etc.  Yep, we’re meat lovers.  So when we bought our house, our realtor failed to tell us that it came with awesome neighbors.  I ended up with a helper last night, my buddy Gab, who I quickly put to work with kitchen shears (what, she said, are these???) to cut up the canadian bacon:

I then had the girls assemble their mini pizzas while the grill warmed up:

This is a fun way to personalize your own food, and everybody gets exactly what they want.  To cook the pizzas, get your grill nice and hot, then oil the grates (we use a vegetable oil-soaked paper towel and rub the grates using tongs).  Once you’re ready to cook the pizzas, turn one side off and cook the pizzas on that side checking the bottom crust frequently to make sure they don’t burn.  Here’s the finished product that I ate:

Looks like my cooking partner in crime liked her pizza!

Enjoy your pizza, and summer outside with friends and family!

Pizza On The Grill

  • Print
Ingredients:

Packaged pizza crust
Pizza sauce
Your choice of toppings
Mozzarella or Italian blend cheese

Preheat grill, and oil grates.  Lightly brush pizza crust with olive oil, then layer sauce cheese and toppings.  Turn off one side of the grill, or turn to very lowest setting.  Grill, watching bottom crust so that it doesn’t burn while the toppings melt.  Remove with tongs and serve with grated mozzarella and crushed red pepper, if desired.
